Finally, some great news to report.
A person (note: no longer a “person required to register as a sex offender”) has been ordered removed from the Florida Sex Offender Registry.
Florida Statue 943.0435(11) contains a provision that says, an individual “shall be considered for removal of the requirement to register as a sexual offender” if they meet certain requirements, including; it being at least 25 years (formerly 20) since they were released from any sanction, have not been arrested for any other crimes, and meet a qualifying offense (not limited to Romeo and Juliet).
Attorney Ron Kleiner was successful in obtaining this relief on behalf of one of his clients, who will now become a “person” again!
If you feel you might qualify for relief under this provision contact your attorney, or for more information write to [email protected]
